Daniil Medvedev has presented his candidacy as the great alternative to the Big Three, the great dominators of the circuit for almost two decades. However, the environment of the Muscovite does not want the slightest relaxation for the recently won the US Open title against Novak Djokovic. It’s time to take more steps forward. “Winning the US Open is a huge step. However, both Daniil and the whole team always focus on performance. It is a way of life, a way of thinking, which means that you are always attached to the idea of doing better and Therefore, to win the next tournament. Daniil has not yet entered that state of mind, because now he must savor the title and is on vacation in the week before the Laver Cup. I have it in my veins, and when I see that Daniil cannot play the PlayStation without climbing the walls if he does not win, I am convinced of the idea that it is something that also happens to him “, explained in Tennis majors Gilles Cervara, coach of the Russian tennis player.
For Cervara, Medvedev’s objective, after proclaiming himself champion of the ATP Finals in 2020 and the US Open this year, cannot be other than to conquer the rest of the Grand Slams: “The Grand Slams are quite plausible targets. However, above all, I always tell myself that any goal needs a lot of work and a lot of improvement on a daily basis. The team has started to think that they have already won a Grand Slam, but we see many things to improve. All of these things represent concrete aspects that must be analyzed with the potential to have a great result. To be number one in the world and win other Grand Slams you must achieve concrete things in your daily work. “
Finally, the Russian coach did not hide the greatest difficulty of this company, which would be to triumph on a Roland Garros clay that is the ‘Achilles heel’ of his pupil: “Win Roland Garros? I would say Daniil is not capable of winning it in 2022, not yet. I think Wimbledon is capable. “
